Having faith in the Word of God

I am writing in response to the article in your newspaper entitled, "Some Bible stories simply are not true." The Bible, God's Holy Word, has been assaulted for centuries. The atheist telling people there is no God. The evolutionist telling man two rocks came together and formed this world and man came from the sea. We now have a retired minister telling us he thinks that parts of the Word of God are not true.

He states in his article the Bible stories are false, funny, ludicrous, preposterous, inappropriate and myths. I would ask him, what parts are we to believe? I would like to reply to these claims.

I am a Christian and I believe all the Bible. I believe the Word of God, the Old Testament and the New Testament is true and it will judge us. 2 Timothy 3:16, 17; scriptures given by God. Proverbs 3:7; Don't be wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord. 1 Corinthians 3:19; "for the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. For it is written, He catches the wise in their own craftiness." James 1:5; If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, it will be given him. Revelation 22:18-20; Don't add to the Book and don't take away.

What else do we have to trust in except our faith and God the creator of this world? Sometimes those who believe in God's word and are willing to stand firm on it, not willing to compromise the word, are accused of using cudgels to assault others.

Yes, I must be a fundamentalist because I believe the Bible is infallible and is the complete Word of God and will stand through all ages.
